DECEMBER - Cohasset students top state, nation in Scholastic Aptitude Testing. 

Cohasset Community Center welcomes First Night '94. 

BOARD OF SELECTMEN 

1993 saw a number of community projects completed, from private, non-profit ven- 
tures like Habitat for Humanity's restoration of the Bates building for affordable housing, 
and the occupation of the newly renovated apartments at the Lightkeepers House, to 
state-funded Town projects, such as dredging of the Harbor and the culvert replacement 
on Doane Street. 

The process of restoring storm -damaged Town-owned property continued, with 
riprap repairs to protect Jerusalem Road. It is anticipated that storm -related repairs will be 
completed in 1994. 

The past year saw changes in administration of the Police, Fire and Harbor Depart- 
ments. At the same time, signs of stability are evident, with setJement of several labor 
contracts during the year. 

A major state initiative, the Education Reform Act, requires a rearrangement of 
duties, responsibilities, and priorities of students, parents, teachers, administrators. School 
Committee members, and taxpayers. Although many of the ideas have merit, the Act 
takes away from Town Meeting the authority to set local priorities to allocate revenue 
between schools, public safety, public works, and other local government programs. It 
remains to be seen if the state will step in and meet its moral, if not legal, responsibilities 
to fund mandated costs under this legislation. 

This past year also saw the Town take a major step to acquire Harborfront property, 
the Cohasset Colonials/Hagerty real estate, which will help improve Harbor access for 
future generations of Cohasset residents. The Board extends its heartfelt thanks to those 
citizens, who not only provided financial support in the form of gifts and taxes, but to 
those who volunteered their time to generate grassroots support for the project, and con- 
tinue to help plan for its future use. 

The economy, both regionally and nationally, slowly started an upward turn in 1993. 
Renovations of office space in the downtown area, coupled with the apparent interest of 
two additional major supermarket chains in locating here, may be evidence that this trend 



18 



has reached Cohasset. The Town must be prepared to deal constructively with the oppor- 
tunities and challenges presented by what could become a new real estate boom in Cohas- 
set, particularly along Route 3- A. 

In the months to come, the Town will continue to progress towards establishing E-9- 
1-1 emergency telecommunications, continue the regional fire and emergency medical 
service initiative, and with the Town's concurrence, build a centralized and modem pub- 
lic works facility. 

The Selectmen take this opportunity to extend thanks to all boards, committees, vol- 
unteers, donors, civic and service organizations, and Town employees for their continued 
dedication and hard work, as well as to the Norfolk County Engineering Department for 
its ongoing contributions in providing surveying, traffic engineering, and design services.

Report of the Board of Registrars 

The Board of Registrars reappointed Margaret Charles as the chairwoman. 

Dorothea Parmenter was reappointed to the Board for three years by the Board of 
Selectmen. As Linda Schultz left her post at the school, the Registrars appointed Deanna 
Mulligan to replace Linda as the School Assistant Registrar. We would like to thank 
Linda for her dedication and hard work over the years and welcome Deanna. 

The following elections and town meetings were held: 
Annual and Special Town Meeting - March 27, 1993 
Annual Town Election - April 3, 1993 
Special Town Meeting - October 25, 1993 

The Annual Listing of Persons seventeen years of age and older as per General 
Laws, Chapter 51, Section 4 was conducted by mail during January. Voter registration 
may be done at the Town Hall any day during regular business hours as well as special 
hours designated for elections and town meetings. To register to vote you must be eigh- 
teen years of age on or before election day, bom in the United States or be a naturalized 
citizen. At this time we have a total of 5,039 voters - 1082, Democrats, 1062 Repubh- 
cans, 2895 UnenroUed. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Margaret Charles, Chairwoman 

Marion Douglas, Clerk 

Judith Volungis 

Dorothea Parmenter 



Report of the Town Archivist 

During 1993 the Town's archive records vault at Town Hall remained in service con- 
tinually. New, permanent Public Records were added as they were turned over to the 
Archivist by various Town Hall offices. 

During the year several researchers utilized the historic Town records. 

The environmental controls of the Town's records storage vaults continue to operate 
according to standards set by the Commonwealth's Public Records laws. Storage space 
available on the shelves of the Town Hall vaults remains adequate, with room for contin- 
ued expansion of usage through the foreseeable future. 

Respectfully submitted, 
David H. Wadsworth, Town Archivist

Report of the Bylaw Committee 

The Bylaw Committee has reviewed those articles proposed for each Town Meeting 
which involve changes in or additions to the Town Bylaws to assure that they are in con- 
formity with existent Bylaws in style and proper placement in the text. The Committee 
has also reviewed such articles passed by Town Meeting and accepted by the Attorney 
General and has directed that these changes be incorporated in copies of the Bylaws in 
the office of the Town Clerk. 

The Bylaw Committee has also checked those legislative acts of the Massachusetts 
General Court which have been adopted by Cohasset Town Meetings between 1985 and 
1992, to assure that they are listed appropriately in the General Bylaws of the Town. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mary E. Gainor, Chairman 

W. Roger Nast 

Louis F. Eaton, Jr. 

Richard A. Henderson, Town Counsel 

(ex officio) 

Marion L. Douglas, Town Clerk 

(ex officio) 



Report of the Town Moderator 

Following my election as Town Moderator, I made a pledge to streamhne and 
demystify the Town Meeting process. I am pleased to report the following positive initia- 
tives toward that goal. 

As Moderator, I developed hand-out Uterature for distribution at Town Meeting 
which contained by-law and other relevant information. Included in the informational 
piece are proposed changes to be voted at the time of the meeting. Due to the popularity 
of the material, I have asked that the information be printed in the Town Warrant so that 
all Cohasset residents may be similarly informed. 

In an effort to stay current on all major issues involving Town government, I 
attended the long range planning session conducted by the Board of Selectmen and Advi- 
sory Committee, and have established a Moderator's mail box at Town Hall, and have 
been placed on all relevant mailing lists, including that of the State Association of Town 
Moderators. I confer on a regular basis with members of the Board of Selecunen and 
Advisory Committee, and make an effort to participate in constructive dialogue on mat- 
ters of consequence to the Town. 

In a continuing effort to streamline the Town Meeting process, and make meetings 
move along in a more productive, fast paced manner, I have worked with proponents of 
various articles to help them format presentations with brevity and clarity. The goal is 
not to limit free speech, rather to encourage solutions rather than speeches. Another time 
saving measure is the restoration of the sequentially numbered selection of articles. I 
have advocated for Cable TV coverage to afford expanded access to all, especially elderly 
or infirm residents. 



79 



Under the Troika process, a number of key vacancies on important Boards and Com- 
mittees were filled. In an effort to open up the selection process, care was taken to iden- 
tify and announce all vacancies, and to give considerable advance notice of Troika meet- 
ings. Press releases were published by local papers in order to ensure an inclusionary 
process. 

In the upcoming year, I will aggressively seek ways to expand the Town Warrant, 
while reducing production and distribution costs, and will explore constructive reform to 
the Troika system. As always, I welcome comments and suggestions from all Cohasset 
residents. 

Respectfully submitted, 
George Marlette, Moderator 



Report of the Committee to Survey the Structure 
and Functions of Town Government 

The purpose of this Committee is to survey the structure and functions of Cohasset 
Town government, its officers, departments and boards, and from time to time, report its 
findings and recommendations, if any, to Town Meeting. To this end the Committee held 
meetings on a regular basis this past year. We have also met, individually and collec- 
tively, with members of other committees. Town officials, and interested citizens. 

Over the course of the past year the Committee has begun what we expect will be a 
comprehensive review of Town government. This Committee remains concerned that 
Department of Revenue data continues to project an increased gap between Town rev- 
enues and expenditures, and will continue to support exploring both regionalization pos- 
sibilities and structural changes which promote economies without reducing services to a 
level unacceptable to the Town. 

In the course of the year the Chairman and Secretary were reelected. 

Respectfully submitted, 

F. Roy Fitzsimmons, Chairman 

Wilson H. Pile, Secretary

Town Counsel 

Consistent with the pattern that has prevailed over most of the last five years, the Town spent 
considerably less during the 1993 fiscal year in legal fees than it did in the prior fiscal year. The 
reduction in legal cost is a direct result of the concentration of effort in preventive legal services 
and less time directed towards the prosecution and defense of lengthy court cases. The Town cur- 
rently is not a defendant in any major lawsuit involving exposure to monetary damages and is using 
outside counsel only in connection with two major environmental matters. The Town retains the 
law firm of Goodwin, Procter & Hoar to represent it in environmental matters relating to or arising 
out of solutions to its wastewater management problems. While there is still a lawsuit pending 
against the Town entitled Division of Water Pollution Control of the Commonwealth of Mas- 
sachusetts V. Town of Cohasset, Suffolk Superior Court, Docket No. 38652, most of special counsel 
time is consumed in negotiations with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to persuade it to allow 
the Town to expand its current wastewater treatment plant. The Utigation is essentially inactive; 
however, it is anticipated that the suit will not be dismissed by the Commonwealth until a solution 
is found to the Town's sewerage problem. 

The Town retains Michael A. Leon of the law firm of Warner & Stackpole to provide legal 
advice involving any matters relating to or arising out of the Cohasset Heights Landfill. Currently, 
special counsel is responsible for protecting the Town's interest in the various permit processes 
involving the proposed expansion of the landfill and matters requiring compliance with environ- 
mental regulations as they pertain to the existing landfill site. 

The Town also retained special municipal labor counsel, Robert W. Garrett, to provide legal 
assistance in connection with matters arising out of collective bargaining agreements by and 
between the Town of Cohasset and its four labor unions. 

In addition to conferring with special counsel from time to time, the Town Counsel's office 
was responsible for the preparation and review of contracts involving municipal departments, 
review and comment on proposed regulations, and the rendering of opinions to all Town depart- 
ments other than the School Department in connection with the day-to-day legal affairs of the com- 
munity. As in past years, the Town Counsel's office defended and prosecuted all other court cases 
and administrative matters affecting the Town. During the 1993 fiscal year, the Town was a party 
to several court cases relating to either enforcement of general and zoning bylaws, or the defense of 
various permit granting boards before the Superior Court in cormection with decisions rendered by 
those agencies. There were also approximately twenty-five (25) cases pending against the Town of 
Cohasset in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts' Appellate Tax Board by taxpayers seeking to 
reduce the assessment on their personal residence or business, three cases pending before the Com- 
monwealth of Massachusetts' Department of Environmental Protection, Waterways Division, relat- 
ing to the issuance or denial of mooring locations in Cohasset Harbor, and approximately six (6) 
tax foreclosure cases pending in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts' Land Court. 

Other than the environmental cases, the Town did not face many serious legal problems during 
the 1993 fiscal year. The decline in the number of Court cases and administrative proceedings 
appears to be as a result of the decreased residential and commercial development in the commu- 
nity during the early years of the 1990's, as well as a reflection of the responsible effort being put 
forth by Town employees, elected officials and dozens of volunteers on appointed and standing 
Town committees in the discharge of their duties to the Town and its citizens. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Richard A. Henderson

Board of Assessors 



Again in 1993, most property values declined as a result of the slumping real estate 
market. New growth appears to have leveled off and we do not expect any major change 
in 1994, since new construction appears sparse. 

The past year has brought many changes to our office and will carry through 1994 with 
the advent of a new Computer Assisted Mass Appraisal program from Data National. 
When installed, this program will fully integrate the Assessors' and Treasurer/Collector's 
office for the first time ever. We look forward to being better able to handle abatements 
of real property and motor vehicle excise taxes through this new program. 

The past year saw the departure of our first Assistant Assessor/Appraiser, Mr. Joseph 
DiVito, who performed his job with a great deal of professionalism and earned the 
respect of many taxpayers. We wish him well in his new position in the City of Water- 
town. 

The past year brought a new part time data entry person into our office, Deborah 
Krupczak. With her talents we have been able to catch up and maintain more accurate 
changes of ownership, address changes, changes in valuations and permit activity. She 
will become increasingly more valuable as we install our new computer program. 

We are most appreciative of Mrs. Janice Rosano, our Senior Clerk, who has weath- 
ered all of these changes and maintains a high degree of proficiency in deahng with tax- 
payers. 

The Assessors present the following value information for all taxable property in the 
Town of Cohasset:

Conservation Commission 

The Conservation Commission is made up of seven members who are appointed by 
the Board of Selectmen. The Commission's responsibility is to protect the fragile 
wetlands areas of our Town in accordance with the requirements of the Massachusetts 
Wetlands Protection Act and the Town of Cohasset Wetlands Bylaw. One of the 
highlights of the past year was the appointment of Edward Graham and Robin Grinnell as 
Associates. These two new positions were created to provide people interested in 
appoinunent to the Commission an opportunity to learn about the various rules and 
regulations by which the Commission must operate, to offer input on a regular basis 
concerning issues that come before the Commission and to assist the Commission in the 
performance of its duties. 

This year the Commission continued its schedule of meeting at least two times each 
month. Additional meetings were held as necessary to address the large number of issues 
brought before us. As well as attending these evening meetings. Commissioners 
regularly inspected properties requiring Conservation approval in OTder to obtain a clear 
understanding of each project and the wetlands issues involved. We also observed an 
increase in attendance at our meetings by residents interested in conservation issues and 
the Wetlands Protection Act. 

The Commission meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month at 7:30 p.m. at 
Town Hall with additional meetings as necessary. Members of the Commission and our 
secretary also attend workshops and conferences in related areas sponsored by such 
groups as the Massachusetts Association of Conservation Commissions (MACC) and the 
Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection.

Board of Health 

In 1993 Robert V. Davenport was elected to the Board after having been appointed 
to fill a vacancy in 1992. WilUam E. Baird, PE, LSP, was re-elected to the Board and in 
its reorganization the Board re-elected him chairman. Robert V. Davenport is the clerk 
and Thomas C. Cook, PE, is the other member. Joseph R. Godzik, VMD, continued as 
Health Agent, and Carol Oteri-Puffer as Administrative Secretary. 

In the schools, the problem of levels of lead in water, above the EPA action levels, 
appears to be a plumbing problem. Replacement of fixture heads, valves, piping, etc., has 
reduced lead levels in some areas below the action levels. The schools will continue to 
replace plumbing over the coming year. 

At Cushing Plaza there has been no progress toward the repair of the failed septic 
system servicing the stores. The Plaza was sold to Shaw's Supermarkets in November. 
The Board is exploring its legal options to solve this problem as soon as possible. 

Cohasset Heights Ltd. landfill submitted its Final Environmental Impact Report for a 
fifteen-acre general refuse landfill expansion just before Christmas. It will be carefully 
reviewed by the Board and its consultants to assure appropriate action will be taken. 

The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection submitted regulations 
regarding septic systems and the upgrading of cesspools. After public comment they 
were to be again reviewed. The Cohasset Tide 5 Study Committee continues to function. 
The committee is looking at financing options and other issues dealing with homes that 
have cesspools. Public information sessions will be held as the new regulations develop. 

Closure of the Town's Cedar Street Landfill is progressing. The Initial Site Assess- 
ment has been submitted to the Department of Environmental Protection by Camp, 
Dresser & McKee, the Town's engineering consultant. Actual closure construction 
should begin in the summer of 1995. 

Solid waste disposal continues to be a function of the Board of Health. The long 
term contract with the SEMASS resource recovery facility went into effect in July. A 
significant increase in disposal costs came into effect at that time. As a result, the resi- 
dential disposal permit fee was increased to $65.00 to continue the policy of funding 
about fifty percent of the costs of tipping fees and transportation. 

The Recycling Committee continues to be very active expanding the items which can 
be recycled and searching for new markets. The new compacter is working well and sav- 
ing money. 

The Board began participation in a fourteen town collaborative to deal with the haz- 
ards of smoking and environmental tobacco smoke. In April, the USEPA declared envi- 
ronmental tobacco smoke a Class A carcinogen, i.e., causing cancer. The Massachusetts 
Department of Public Health gave a grant of $300,000 to the fourteen towns to reduce 
smoking by fifty percent by 1999. The fourteen town South Shore Board of Health Col- 
laborative will work towards this end through policy development, education, cessation 
programs, and enforcement of laws prohibiting sales of tobacco products to minors. This 
program is being funded by the twenty-five cents per pack excise tax on cigarettes. 

The raccoon rabies epizootic continues in Massachusetts. There have been no con- 
firmed cases in Cohasset, but cases have occurred as close as Milton. Parents should 
advise children not to play with wildlife and avoid any animal which appears to be acting 
abnormally. 



118 



For the first time the Board offered immunizations for pneumococcal pneumonia to 
persons over sixty-five years of age and those at high risk for respiratory diseases. It is 
anticipated that this will be an ongoing program. 

The Revolving Account receipts and expenditures for septage disposal at Upper 
Blackstone Pollution Abatement District in 1993 were: 
Receipts 45051.35 

Expenditures 42143.35 

Interest Earned 380.99.

Metropolitan Area Planning Council 

Throughout the year, MAPC has been representing the interests of communities in 
the region on a number of critical planning issues. In August MAPC initiated a public 
information process for review and comment on the Regional Transportation Plan, a 
long-range planning document that lays out future transportation investments in the 
region. Working within the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) structure, along 
with 5 other agencies, MAPC participated in the development of the Plan, mandated by 
the ISTEA (Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act) federal legislation. 
MAPC's involvement in the Regional Transportation Plan resulted in a final draft that 
was more reflective of local needs. 

Other transportation planning initiatives that MAPC participated in on behalf of its 
communities include coordinating local review of amendments to the TIP (Transportation 
Improvement Program) the State Implementation Plan (SIP) for Air Quality, and the Pro- 
gram for Mass Transportation (PMT). 

MAPC also participated in the federally required reclassification of local roads, 
hosted an informational forum on the SEP, coordinated and solicited Transportation 
Demand Management (TDM) and transportation enhancement project development and 
funding, and participated in an electric vehicle pilot program to demonstrate the viability 
of alternative fuel vehicles in Massachusetts. 

As the lead agency for the development of the Overall Economic Development Pro- 
gram (OEDP) for the region, MAPC brought together local officials and the region's 
business community to develop the OEDP priorities. In January, the Economic Develop- 
ment Administration (EDA) approved MAPC's OEDP qualifying the projects contained 
in it for public works grants from the EDA. During the year, OEDP project funding by 
the EDA totaled SI. 8 million. 

MAPC's Data Center continued to develop and disseminate information on the com- 
munities in the region. Last year the center developed a 1990 census profile of sample 
data for each community in the region, surveyed and compiled an inventory of vacant 
industrial and commercial sites for each community in the region, and developed journey 
to work data and population and age group forecasts for each community. 



119 



MAPC's administrative support of the eight subregions continued to provide an 
important coordinating link between the towns and the region. In 1993 the South Shore 
Coalition (SSC) focused on several transportation projects, including the Route 3A 
Bridge in Marshfield and Scituate, the proposed Route 3 widening project, the Summer 
Street/George Washington Boulevard bicycle path in Hingham, and the Old Colony Rail 
Restoration Project. The group also reviewed and responded to the Regional Transporta- 
tion Plan and the Transportation Improvement Program and considered flood insurance, 
coastal water quality, economic development, solid waste management, and the South 
Weymouth Naval Air Station. In May the SSC sponsored a meeting with South Shore 
legislators to discuss legislative priorities. 

MAPC also provided administrative support to the South Shore Regional Disposal 
Planning Board formed in the spring of 1992, to study the feasibility of forming a sohd 
waste management district. 

MAPC continues to be a strong voice for local participation in the planning process 
and a valuable resource to communities. In addition to the above activities, last year 
MAPC staff also met with SSC town administrators to draft a Request for Proposals for 
an office supply bid.

Mosquito Control Committee 

Efforts of the Mosquito Control Committee were devoted to the following goals: 

1) Responding to individual requests by residents for help with mosquito problems in 
the vicinity of their homes. Visits were made to each household requesting help to dis- 
cuss mosquito control in the area, and appropriate literature concerning mosquito prob- 
lems was given. A reporting form is now available in the Board of Health office. All 
calls dealing with mosquito problems are logged on these forms and turned over to our 
committee. In 1994 we plan to revisit or call each household reporting to us in 19(93 to 
ascertain their experiences with mosquitoes. 

2) Long-range planning to attain the goal of making Cohasset as free from serious 
mosquito problems as possible. We met with representatives of the Board of Health, 
Conservation Commission, Tree and Park Department, and Drainage Study Committee to 
discuss strategies for effective integrated pest management (IPM) Results of this meeting 
were reported to the Selectmen, and three requests were made: 

a) Funds were asked for and granted to purchase a set of 66 topographic maps of 
the Town at a scale of 1 inch to 100 feet. With the assistance of Town officials, local res- 
idents, students, and particularly the Plymouth County Mosquito Control Project, we 
hope to utilize these maps in 1994 to identify potential mosquito-breeding areas. This 
plan will provide the basis for developing an environmentally compatible program for 
mosquito control. 

b) The second request was to reactivate the Drainage Study Committee, which 
would help both our committee and the Conservation Commission. 



120 



c) The final request was for assistance from the Highway Department and the 
Tree and Park Department in identifying brooks and streams which need to be cleared to 
improve water flow. 

Our committee would sincerely appreciate advice from any citizens who have had 
experience in control of air-borne insects. 

We are happy to welcome for 1994 Donna French, who will be filling a vacancy on 
the committee.

Planning Board 

"The Cohasset Planning Board, under the authority granted to it by Massachusetts 
General Laws, Chapter 40a, Chapter 41, and the Cohasset Zoning Bylaws, fulfilled the 
following responsibilities in 1993: 

- Reviewed 15 Subdivisions Not Requiring Approval; 

- Reviewed for initial consideration or final approval two Site Plans for the 
Highway Business, Light Industry, and Downtown Business Districts; 

- Continued monitoring of approved Cluster Developments, Subdivisions, 
and Site Plans under consideration; 

- The Board held a Public Hearing regarding changes in the Zoning Bylaws. 
These changes were: "To see if the Town would vote to adopt a corrected 
and amended version of the Zoning Bylaws". In Bylaw 5.2.8, fence height 
went from five to six feet, and Bylaw 12.2.1 1 was changed from "A penalty 
of One Hundred Dollars..." to "A Penalty not to exceed One Hundred 
Dollars...."

Plymouth County Mosquito Control Project 

The Project is a special district created by the State Legislature in 1957, and is now 
composed of 24 Plymouth County towns, the City of Brockton, and the Town of 
Cohasset in Norfolk County. The Project is a regional response to a regional problem and 
provides a way of organizing specialized equipment, specially trained employees, and 
mosquito control professionals into a single agency with a broad geographical area of 
responsibihty. 

The 1993 season began with an above normal water table which produced large 
numbers of spring brood mosquitoes throughout the County. Efforts were directed at 
larval mosquitoes starting with the spring brood. Ground and aerial larviciding was 
accomplished using B.T.I., an environmentally selective bacterial agent. Upon emer- 
gence of the spring brood of adult mosquitoes, ultra-low -volume adulticiding began. 
The Project responded to increased numbers of service requests until a drying trend 
occurred during mid-summer. All sprayers and trucks performed well with little time 
lost to breakdowns. 

The threat of the mosquito-transmitted disease Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) 
was low in 1993. No horse or human cases occurred, but virus was recovered from bird- 
feeding mosquitoes. The recurring problem of EEE in Southeastern Massachusetts con- 
tinues to ensure cooperation between this Project and the Massachusetts Department of 
Public Health. 

The figures specific to the Town of Cohasset are given below. While mosquitoes do 
not respect town hnes, the information given below does provide a tally of the activities 
which have had the greatest impact on the health and comfort of Cohasset residents. 

Insecticide Application: 1,632 acres were treated using truck mounted sprayers for 
control of adult mosquitoes. More than one application was made to the same site if 
mosquitoes reinvaded the area. The first treatments were made in May and the last in 
September. 

Our greatest effort has been targeted at mosquitoes in the larval stage which can be 
found in woodland pools, marshes, and other standing water areas. Inspectors continually 
gather data on these sites and treat with highly specific larvicides when immature 
mosquitoes are present. Last year a total of 68 inspections were made to 77 catalogues 
breeding sites. 

Water Management: During 1993 crews removed blockages, brush and other 
obstructions from 3,975 linear feet of ditches and streams to prevent overflows or stagna- 
tion that can result in mosquito breeding. This work, together with machine reclamation, 
is most often carried out in the fall and winter. 

Machine Reclamation: 1,545 linear feet of saltmarsh ditch was reconstructed in 
Cohasset using one of the Project's two track-driven backhoes. 

Finally, we have been tracking complaint response time; that is, the time between 
notice of a mosquito problem and response by one of our inspectors. The complaint 
response time in the Town of Cohasset was less than two days, with more than 210 com- 
plaints answered. 

Mosquito Survey: A systematic sampUng of mosquitoes in Cohasset indicates that 
Coquillettidia perturbans was the most abundant species. Other important species col- 
lected included Culex territans and Aedes cantator.

Recycling Committee 

Recycling in Cohasset continues successfully. Paper, corrugated glass, magazines, 
clothing, cans, steel, plastic and retumables all are recycled to local vendors for further 
processing. 

Construction of a building to house our new baler was completed this past year. The 
baling of corrugated and plastic milk mugs has turned an expensive process into one of 
actual income to the Town. 

The committee has continued to approach recycUng from an educational rather than 
enforcement standpoint. Annual school day, when four classes of Cohasset students visit 
the RTF and review the various methods of recycling, is effectively coordinated with 
members of the Recycling Committee. Handouts updating recycling are passed out peri- 
odically. Monitors are encouraging proper recycling. 

The Committee is continuously researching markets for new vendors and reviewing 
possible new items to recycle. 

The Recycling Committee thanks all residents who support the recycling efforts. 

RecycUng transfer facility employees have been helpful in the Committee's efforts.

Public Safety 

Animal Control Department 

In 1993 the Animal Control Department traded in the 1987 LTD that was being used 
for animal control and received a 1991 LTD from the Police Department for use in ani- 
mal control. During the spring, Cohasset entered into an agreement with the Town of 
Scituate, and now boards all stray dogs at Scituate's new animal shelter on the Driftway. 
Since entering into the agreement with Scituate, many dogs have been impounded and 
boarded at the Scituate facility. 

With the rabies epidemic so close, I have worked with the Board of Health to estab- 
lish policies and procedures on how to deal with rabid animals. A great deal of time was 
put into licensing dogs, and making sure that all dogs and cats are vaccinated against 
rabies. There were over 750 dogs licensed in Cohasset in 1993. 

Many calls were received regarding wildlife problems and questions. Most of the 
questions were relating to the trapping of wild animals in so-called "Have A Heart" traps. 
These traps are available in most hardware stores, and you can purchase these traps. 
However, it is illegal to trap wildlife without a permit issued by the State Division of 
Fisheries and Wildlife. Don't get caught using a trap without a permit; it carries a hefty 
fine. 

As always, if you have any questions regarding animals or animal laws, please con- 
tact my office and I would be more than happy to try to help you. Remember, license 
your dog on time and vaccinate your pet against rabies. It is just a matter of time until we 
see an outbreak of rabies in Cohasset. 

Respectfully submitted, 

William P. Quigley 

Animal Control Officer 



Emergency Management 

Although the nation was plagued with several various emergencies during 1993, 
Cohasset remained relatively quiet. Only one "state of emergency" was declared in 
Cohasset during the year. This was a coastal storm that placed us on full alert. There 
was some minor coastal flooding, but no evacuation was necessary. 

Electrical outages from falUng tree limbs were handled by Eastern Edison. 

The Town engaged in a "storm exercise" with Eastern Edison Company in Novem- 
ber to test the effectiveness of their Emergency Storm Program. 

Cohasset can be proud of its employees for their dedication to duty at trying times.

In conclusion, I would like to extend to the citizens of Cohasset, the Board of Select- 
men, the heads and members of the Town departments and committees, my sincere 
thanks and appreciation for their assistance. 

To all of the Officers and Firefighters of the Department for their dedication and per- 
formance of duties, my sincere thanks and appreciation.

Harbor Master 

1993 was a successful boating season with no fataUties. The Harbor Master's 
Department assisted twenty-eight disabled boaters. 

Since taking over for Mr. Gadow, I have come to meet a lot of interesting people in 
and around the Harbor. I knew Mr. Gadow both as a friend and as a fellow Harbor Mas- 
ter, and he will be missed. I hope to make the transition a smooth one, but everyone 
should expect some changes. 

The winter of 1993 was not kind to us as continuous cold weather and storms with 
high winds and snow kept our commercial fleet moored in ice some four to five inches 
thick. A thank you goes out to all our mooring residents for their patience during the 
state dredging project inside the Harbor. 

Thanks go to Peter Laugelle and the Tree and Park Department for their assistance 
around the various wharf areas in keeping them neat and clean for the amount of traffic in 
and out of our small Harbor both by vehicle and vessel. Thanks go, also, to the patience 
of the Police Department while running numerous registration numbers for user fee bills. 

Special thanks go to my assistant Bob Baggs for his extra time and help in making 
me aware and answering my hundreds of questions in the day-to-day routine of the Har- 
bor. A thank you to my other assistants Cliff Dickson, Dave Marks, Tom Wigmore and 
Howard Hunt for representing this office in a professional manner and making boating in 
this area safe, educational and fun.

Shawn E. Kelly

Highlights of activities by the Cohasset Police Department during 1993 include, but 
are not limited to the following: 
o I appointed a new Detective, one Sergeant and two new police officers, one of 

whom will begin on the job in February. 
o In March we installed a Mobile Data Terminal into our highway cruiser. 

o In May we instituted a billing system for false alarms, according to the by-law, 

resulting in a 10% decrease in false alarms for the year and the collection of 
$1,350 in assessments in the first six months. 
o In early summer, after nominating the Cohasset Drug and Alcohol Committee 

for the Drug Fighter of the Year Award, sponsored by the Mass. Governor's 
Alliance Against Drugs and the Drug Enforcement Administration, they were 
one of only six recipients of this prestigious award, 
o During the summer I requested an early closing for Sandy Beach which precipi- 

tated a change in the by-law, transferring the authority to the Board of Select- 
men regarding opening and closing hours for the beach lot. 
o Also, during the summer, I instituted night firing training classes for our police 

officers. 
o I also attempted to alleviate some traffic problems in the downtown area, 

namely, the elimination of dehvery trucks during business hours and the dis- 
couragement of U-turns in the square, 
o I might note that the Annual Town Report reflects a dramatic decrease in violent 

crimes in Cohasset in 1993 and a notable decrease in other non- violent crimes 
and arrests. 

Although there were more traffic accidents in 1993, there were no serious 
injuries. I am proud to note that Cohasset has not had a fatal accident since 
1986. 
Some of the plans I have for the new year include stepping up radar patrols and the 
addressing of parking and safety issues. We also look forward to our new communica- 
tions system,hopefully being augmented by E-91 1. In 1994 the Town will be involved in 
negotiating a new contract with the Cohasset Patrolmen's Union which will include sum- 
mer officers. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Brian W. Noonan, Chief of Police 



Wire Department 

Fire and Traffic Signals 

In 1993 one new master box was added to the fire alarm system. Replacement of 
one thousand feet of alarm wire was installed. Alarm boxes were tested for proper opera- 
tion and painting was again started. Traffic lights were kept in good working order and 
new flashing units were installed in all lights.

Wire Inspections 

All electrical work performed by contractors was inspected by the department and 
fees turned into the Town Treasurer. 

ELECTRICAL INSTALLATIONS AND REPAIRS TO TOWN BUILDINGS 

Repairs and new work to Town-owned buildings and properties was done by the 
Wire Department. 

I wish to thank all departments for their help during this past year.

Cemetery Study Committee 

During the year it became apparent that we could not work out an acceptable access 
with the abutters for the Pleasant Street cemetery. The committee decided to find an 
alternative site for a new cemetery. At the 1994 Annual Town Meeting, we plan to pre- 
sent plans for a new cemetery on a portion of the former school facility's land off 3 A. 
Our completed plans for Pleasant Street remain on file.

Government Island Study Committee 

Government Island, formerly known as Doane's Island, is probably the most historic 
7.37 acres of Cohasset's land area. It is used mainly by the fishermen of Cohasset for 
landing their catch and maintaining their boats; these activities go on year round. Other 
activities include recreational boaters, the Sailing Club, visitors who enjoy the atmo- 
sphere and history of the Town from this perspective, and Townspeople out for plain 
every-day relaxation. 

The Committee, which consists of five members (volunteers) plus the Harbor Mas- 
ter, make suggestions and advise the Selectmen with recommendations pertaining to the 
Island's maintenance and improvements. The Selectmen will authorize expenditures, if 
they feel they are advisable, and in some cases these requests for money are brought 
before Town Meeting. 



129 



During 1993 three meetings were held to discuss: 

1 . General conditions of the Island 

2. Status of the Minot's Light replica project. 

3. Discussion of the Historic boathouse presently located on the Hagerty property 
(now Town owned). 

4. Other business. 

The Committee firmly believes that Government Island is one of Cohasset's greatest 
assets ~ historically, commercially and recreationally. We want it to be walked, studied, 
looked at, appreciated and loved by Townspeople and visitors alike.

Harbor Committee 

The Harbor Committee, during 1993, continued to investigate and make recommen- 
dations to increase safe utilization of the Harbor and to provide for fair and effective 
administration. The highUghts for the past year were: 

1. Harbor Dredging: After a long delay, we were fortunate to have had some 
dredging done in the Harbor, thanks to the efforts of the late Phihp G. Murray, who got 
the needed funds allocated by the State, and the perseverance of Representative Mary 
Jeanette Murray. The dredging was a token of what we now need, but was beneficial 
nonetheless. Approximately 8,000 cubic yards of fill and 650 cubic yards of rock were 
removed, which allows for safer navigation in the Harbor. 

2. Hagerty Property Acquisition: The Harbor Committee unanimously endorsed 
and helped to promote the Town's purchase of former Cohasset Colonials property on 
Parker Avenue to ultimately benefit the waterfront of our Harbor. A representative of our 
Committee currently is serving on the Hagerty Property Acquisition Committee, which 
will be recommending the use(s) of this property by the Town. 

3. Towing and Storage of Illegally Moored Boats: The Harbor Master has been 
unable to remove illegally moored boats due to the lack of resources and has had to 
depend on obtaining a court order, whenever a boat is illegally moored in the Harbor, to 
try to have the owner remove the illegally moored boat. Many times the court orders have 
been ignored and it has taken an inordinate effort by the Harbor Master to initiate legal 
steps to have the illegally moored boats removed from the Harbor. We were successful in 
arranging for two local companies to take the full responsibility to remove these illegally 
moored boats from the Harbor at the direction of the Harbor Master and to put them into 
safe storage at the expense of the owners and without any liability to the Town.

4. New Harbor Master Appointed: We were sorry, as were many others in Town, 
to have Irving Gadow resign as Harbor Master in June. Shawn Kelly was appointed in 
August as Harbor Master and has settled in easily to take over from Irv. Shown was pre- 
viously an Assistant Harbor Master in Scituate, and like Irving, was formerly with the U. 
S. Coast Guard. We are fortunate to have Shawn on board. Do not hesitate to introduce 
yourself and add your welcome to him. 

5. Storm Warning Precautions Distributed: The Harbor Committee has written a 
paper with detailed precaution instructions for boat owners to follow whenever a major 
storm threatens. The paper is being distributed to all mooring holders with their bills. If 
you would like a copy of this paper, please see the Harbor Master.

Highway Department 

The cleanup after the Blizzard of '92 kept us busy through most of January and dur- 
ing the remainder of the winter season we were out sanding and plowing twenty-eight 
times. I am proud of the job that our men here at the Highway Department do keeping our 
roads safe for travel. My thanks also to the hired contractors who work for the Town of 
Cohasset. 

When good weather arrived we began our road sweeping program and swept and 
cleaned every street of sand build-up and general debris. During the following months the 
sweeper was out frequently, keeping the streets clean. 

During the spring months we replaced 900 feet of fence on Border Street, 400 feet of 
fence on Atlantic Avenue and 100 feet of fence on Doane Street. We will be continuing 
to replace fences around the Town when time allows. 

We also installed the new play center equipment at Beechwood Park. 

While the weather remained good we worked on the repair and/or replacement of 
catch basins and rebuilt six more. One hundred feet of connecting pipe was installed also. 

The Highway Department was also active in road resurfacing in 1993. With money 
from slate grants we resurfaced sections of King, Sohier and South Main Streets. The 
Highway Department also reconstructed and resurfaced Doane Street after the completion 
of the new Doane Street culvert. I was very pleased to see this project finally become a 
reality. Using 280 tons of asphalt, various roads were grader patched. We were also able 
to resurface various sidewalks around Town. 



131 



All through the year we repaired and replaced signs where needed. 

Finally, the year ended the same way it began, with many inches of snow on the 
ground. 

I would like to extend special thanks to my men and to the men from the Tree and 
Park, Wire, and Water Departments for their cooperation. 

Respectfully submitted,

Public Works Garage Study Committee 

The Public Works Garage Study Committee was formed to study the requirements of 
and potential sites for a centralized public works facility. Specific tasks to be accom- 
plished include the following 

Review the data and conclusions of the Town Garage Study Committee; 
Review the data and conclusions of the Public Works Study Committee; 
Determine the space needs for equipment and personnel of the various 
public works functions and operations, including school department ana 
refueling depot; 

Survey the Town for potential sites; and 
Review zoning, wetlands and locational issues of each site. 
During 1993 the Committee selected the following three sites for further consideration: 

Assessors Plan 18. Location of the Highway Department Garage behind 
the Red Lion Inn. This includes 45,785 square feet plus a portion of the 
municipal parking lot (Plans 27 and 18). These plots back up to the old 
railroad right of way. 
• Assessors Plan 15. The gravel pit land opposite the westerly end of Red 

Gate Lane and backing up to the Little League Field (part of 8.85 acres). 
Assessors Plan 5. The Transfer Station on Cedar Street (part of 19.13 
acres). 

As a result of a series of discussions with other Town boards and committees, the 
Transfer Station was eliminated from further consideration due to safety concerns related 
to the dangerous intersection of Cedar Street and North Main Street. The location of the 
existing Highway Department Garage was eliminated from ftirther consideration because 
it was felt that it would be an inappropriate land use for a downtown commercial area. 
Preliminary discussions with the Conservation Commission indicated that under certain 
conditions, locating the garage in the gravel pit area would be acceptable to the Commis- 
sion. Therefore, this location was selected for further analysis. 

At the 1993 Annual Town Meeting an appropriation of $20,000 for architectural and 
engineering services for a pubhc works garage was approved. In May of 193 the gravel 
pit site passed water table and perc tests. In the fall the entire area was surveyed by the 



M.n 



Norfolk County Engineers and the locations of wetlands areas and wells were plotted on 
a topographic map. An architect has been engaged to develop a preliminary conceptual 
design and cost estimates for the new garage. In 1994, we plan to submit a warrant article 
for the Annual Town Meeting asking the Town to approve funding for the design and 
construction of a new public works garage facility.

Sewer Commission 

The Town's Waste Water Treatment Facility ("WWTF") continued to operate well in 
1993 under the Town's contract with Professional Services Group, Inc. ("PSG"). The 
Commission went out to bid for a new contract in September, and this was won by PSG. 

The Commissioners are continuing their efforts to develop a satisfactory expansion 
plan for the Town's WWTF together with an expanded service area. To this end, the 
Commissioners are working with the Department of Environmental Protection and the 
Division of Marine Fisheries to identify the standards, tests and analyses necessary to 
demonstrate that the proposed expansion will satisfy State and Federal requirements.

Tree, Park and Cemetery Department 

The Department has a capital project every year. This year we did drainage work on 
the outfield at Beechwood Ball Park. 

It was a busy spring for repairing parks and ball fields and mowing. A dry summer 
and fall caused a lot of damage to trees, parks and ball fields. This required a lot of work 
in late fall planting grass and caused considerable damage to small trees and new trees. 
The Department trimmed and cut trees that needed attention. 

The Department also concentrated on clearing brush from sidewalks and edges of roads. 

I would like to thank all department heads for their cooperation and help during the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Peter G. Laugelle, Superintendent

Water Department 

Total production from the treatment facility for the year ending December 31, 1993 
was 227,270,900 gallons of drinking water. This is an increase over the previous year and 
is primarily due to an extended heat wave during the summer months. The treatment 
facility experienced some major equipment failures over the year and anticipates fiiture 
breakdown due to the advancing age of the purification equipment. 

The department has made extensive modifications to its administrative procedures 
and accounting practices over the preceding twelve months. This has resulted in two 
computer conversions with the associated delays and confusion. An ongoing program to 
install outside metering equipment on dwellings with access problems is starting to meet 
with some success, and will ehminate some estimated bills of long standing. 

The department has met and surpassed al requirements mandated by both state and 
federal agencies, along with the requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act, as 
amended.

Council On Aging 

The Cohasset Council on Aging, established in 1968 by Town Meeting, celebrated 
its 25th year in 1993. The original purpose of the Council was and continues to be to: 

1. Identify the needs and concerns of Cohasset' s elderly and retired persons and those 
approaching retirement age; 

2. Design, promote, coordinate and implement services and programs to meet those 
needs and concerns; and 

3. Inform the community and enlist support and participation of all citizens in this 
effort. 

The number of people age sixty plus in Cohasset in 1993 was 1,452, with 19% over 
the age of 80. This is predicted to be the fastest growing segment of the senior population 
in the next ten years. 

The Council on Aging is directed by a volunteer board. The Selectmen appoint nine 
members, each for a three-year term. The board is responsible for determining the poli- 
cies of the Council on Aging in response to the expressed needs of elders in the town 
through annual surveys,and a careful analysis of local needs, as well as local and national 
standards of health care, recreation, education and service needs. 

The Cohasset Senior Center is located in the Community Center. The board should 
feel a great sense of accomplishment with the completion of Phase 1 of the expansion 
project and the rent-free agreement as a result of their hard-working efforts. 

The professional Council on Aging staff oversees services and programs. The staff 
provides information, referrals, and assistance to elders and their famihes. After major 
cutbacks in the late eighties and early nineties due to Town budget reductions, the Coun- 
cil is pleased to have a restored budget for FY93. The Center is open Monday-Fridays, 
8:30 am - 4:30 pm and many special programs are offered on weekends. In July we 
extended the lunch program to two days a week and the seniors have enjoyed the varied 
menu and programs since the program was moved into the beautiful new room of the 
Senior Center. We have served over 1,800 meals to 120 different persons in conjunction 
with South Shore Elder Services. Thanks go to 74 volunteers who assist Lindsay J. Guild 
in making this weekly program such a success. Volunteers provide transportation to med- 
ical appointments, shopping trips, day trips, and the Senior Center to 125 different older 
persons. We look forward to using the new Senior 16-B-2 Van, and to date seven people 
have signed up to be driving for the new van that will help provide transportation for the 
disabled living in Cohasset. This van was covered in part by a grant from South Shore 
Elder Services and it will permit us to enter into a joint venture with the town of Hing- 
ham. Both towns will share the cost of operating this vehicle. 

Other achievements in 1993 included: 

1 . $12,500 Grant for "Map-5'Tor Medical Rides from South Shore Elder Services. 

2. Share Program trained and placed nineteen certified councilors. The total number of 
elders served in FY93 was 382. The documented financial benefit to clients served 
by the program is $22,405. 

3. Outreach teas were held over the past year The purpose was to introduce "Newcomers" to 
the COA, telling them about our programs and having them meet staff" and board members. 



135 



4. Through a grant from the Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA), the Cohasset 
COA was awarded funds for developing our computer system to fill the needs of the 
growing workload of the director's office, the Shine Program and the Outreach Pro- 
jects. 

5. An Entertainment Center has been built and installed in the meeting room of the 
Center. This unit was built at the South Shore Vocational School, where our former 
board member, David Chittim, served on the board. 

At the end of the 1993 Fiscal Year, our records indicated 637 persons were served at 
the Center in weekly classes and special programs. The Council on Aging offers a full 
range of services for Cohasset seniors. This is largely due to the hard work and effort of 
multiple volunteers who number over 150, and have provided close to $100,000 worth of 
service throughout this past year. 

The growing percentage (20%) of older senior citizens in town, in particular those 
who are over 80, and the increasing number of middle aged people who have responsibil- 
ity for caring for aging parents, guided the reinstatement of the Care Givers' Support 
Group this year. We thank the Hingham VNA, Norwell VNA, and the five local COA's 
for their continued support in helping make the support group a successful effort. 

We at the Cohasset Council on Aging are proud of our accomplishments this past 
year, and we look to the coming changes in the world of health and long-term care with 
renewed purpose. We pledge to do our best to take up the challenges that lie ahead, and 
continue to advocate for and to serve the elders here in Cohasset. 

Our thanks go to our staff, board members, Town employees and the volunteers who 
joined us in making this past year the great success that it was, and to our financial sup- 
porters, particularly The Friends of the Cohasset COA, who have so generously sup- 
ported our expansion program. 

Finally, we wish to thank Glenn Pratt, the Community Center board and their won- 
derful staff who supported and assisted us throughout this past year.

During calendar year 1993, as in prior years, the Commission met on a number of 
occasions to consider applications filed with respect to various matters concerning the 
Cohasset Historic District. For the first half of the year Marian Atkinson and Liz Bates 
served as Chairman and Secretary, respectively, of the Commission. Upon expiration of

Cohasset Housing Authority 

Renovation and replacement work continue at the complex through the state EOCD 
Modernization Bureau. A new heating system, as well as a new roof, were installed at 72 
Elm Street. Smoke detectors were replaced and emergency lights were installed at Har- 
borview. In October a survey of the courtyards at Harborview was made by the Norfolk 
County Engineers. The ultimate reconfiguration of the courtyards is to begin in the spring 
of 1994. In this way the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) will be addressed with 
particular attention to the four wheelchair-accessible apartments. 

The Harborview Capita Improvement Plan, initiated in 1990, was again reviewed by 
EOCD. The C.I.P., linked to the Housing Bond Bill, is before the Legislature for con- 
sideration this year. 

Director Barbara Clain took advantage of an early retirement incentive program and 
retired in July. Subsequently, the Board hired her back to work through the transition 
period. 

The tenants' organization disbanded in April, with the possibility of reforming in 1994. 

A two-year audit of the federal Section 8 Program was completed in May. 

The Authority wishes to thank the Highway, Fire, and Police Departments, Social 
Service League, Visiting Nurses, Council on Aging, Homemakers, and all the agencies 
that contribute to the health and well being of the residents of Harborview. Barbara Clain 
wishes to lake this opportunity to express her appreciation to all of the board members of 
all of the boards with whom she has worked over the past fourteen years.

Drug and Alcohol Committee 

This year saw the continuation of many programs sponsored by the Drug and Alco- 
hol Committee: Safe Homes, Tag-a-Keg, graduation key rings, educational literature to 
parents of sixth graders. This year we initiated a discussion of the D.A.R.E. program with 
the School Committee. It is the opinion of our committee that we need to do more in the 
elementary schools in the area of prevention, and the D.A.R.E. program is the nationally 
recognized vehicle for doing so. As a result of our discussions, a new alhance is being 
formed between the schools and the police department, which we hope will bring poUce 
into the schools in a positive way. 

Planning for the next Drug Free Weekend is well underway, and promises to be the 
biggest and best ever. Response from the community is very positive, and the Drug Free 
Weekend Committee is enthusiastically working to promote this event. 

The highlight of the year came when the Governor's Alliance Against Drugs and the 
Drug Enforcement Administration named the Cohasset Drug and Alcohol Committee 
recipients of the 1993 Drug Fighter of the Year Award. The committee was the only com- 
munity organization in Massachusetts to be so honored. Although the committee is still 
very young, we have been working hard to make a difference in our community. This 
award was the positive affirmation that what we are doing is being noticed and is making 
a difference. 

The committee accepted with regret the resignations of two of our long-term mem- 
bers. We thank them for their dedication and support and welcome several new members 
to the committee.

Handicapped Commission 

The Handicapped Commission members would like to thank Deborah Richards for 
her dedicated service to the Commission as Vice Chairman. Deborah provided a unique 
perspective to all issues brought before the Commission. 

A wheelchair accessible van was purchased from the South Shore Elder Services 
providing a cost-effective way to furnish transportation for all disabled residents of 
Cohasset. The operation of the van will be a joint effort between the Councils on Aging 
and the Handicapped Commissions of Hingham and Cohasset. Eighty percent of the cost 
is federally funded, while the remaining twenty percent will be shared with Hingham on a 
pro-rated basis. Cohasset will operate the van two days a week and Hingham will operate 
the van three days a week. Driver training offered by the South Shore Elder Services is 
free of charge. 

The Handicapped Commission has filed for estabhshment of a non-profit group to be 
known as "Friends of the Cohasset Commission on the Disabled." This group will assist 
with fundraising and scheduling of the van. 

The Commission has been involved in advising many groups on handicapped access 
to buildings and parking spaces.

Paul Pratt Memorial Library 

The trustees of the Paul Pratt Memorial Library lost the valuable contributions of 
long-time trustee Betty Eaton with her death in February. Betty's knowledgeable love of 
books and of the library, combined with her decisive opinions and good wit and humor, 
informed trustees' meetings for almost 20 years. 

Selectmen and library trustees jointly selected Patience G. Towle, former president 
of the Friends of the Cohasset Library, to fill the remaining year of her term. 

At the start of 1993, Cohasset' s pubhc library, the Paul Pratt Memorial Library, had 
its foot into the 21st century as it went "on line" in the Old Colony Library Network 
(more on this below). As 1993 began, the trustees beheved that, after several years of pre- 
occupation with getting "on line" with the OCLN network, it was time to evaluate seri- 
ously every other aspect of our public library operation, with a view to assessing the 
library's current condition. Such an evaluation would lay the groundwork for setting pri- 
orities and guiding budgets. 

Trustees' committees. Five subcommittees of the Board of Trustees were appointed 
in april to consider and report to the full board regarding building maintenance, book- 
shelves, cooperation with the high school hbrary, grounds maintenance, and development 
of the endowment. The work of these committees is ongoing, but has already identified 
projects and programs which will improve hbrary operations. 

Building maintenance. An active trustee committee took inventory of the 90-year- 
old library building and, with the invaluable help of three Cohasset citizens experienced 
in building design and construction (Richard Grinnell, Richard Tousley, and Charles C. 
Ford) recommended priority projects to the Board of Trustees. As a result, the trustees 
will ask the 1994 Annual Town Meeting for funds to repair the building's roofs, gutters, 
and downspouts, as well as money for repointing and waterproofing the exterior bricks 
and windowsills. 

A Special Town Meeting in Fall 1993 authorized funds for materials for construction 
of a handicapped-access parking space in the library parking circle. Cohasset' s Highway 
Department will actually construct the space in Spring 1994, which is a wonderful help! 

Old Colony Library Network (OCLN). With the departure of the old wooden card 
catalogue, all Cohasset library users are now really aware that the library's holdings are 
accessed only through one of the computer terminals in the hbrary. With this has come 
the realization that the terminals give the user information about the location of all mate- 
rial in the 24 OCLN member libraries relative to the subject, author, or title in which the 
user is interested. Daily deliveries among the member libraries provide ready availability 
of materials from other libraries. An electronic circulation system, new at the very end of 
1992, has proved speedy and accurate, and most volunteers at the circulation desk have 
made a good transition to this very different system. 

Friends of the Cohasset Library, Inc. 1993 marked the Friends' twenty-fifth year 
of valuable service to Cohasset' s library I As if to mark the birthday, the Friends, led by 
Suzan Killilea, were awarded FIRST PRIZE by the Massachusetts Library Association 
for their continued efforts to promote the library within the community. As ever, the 
Friends helped provide more than 50 volunteers' time to the library, for an equivalent of 
more than $30,000 of staff work, and continued gifts of family passes to the New Eng- 
land Aquarium, Museum of Fine Arts, Museum of Science, and Children's Museum. In

1993, the Friends also sponsored a standing-room-only lecture on the market for old and 
rare books by Kenneth Gloss, and initiated on-going art exhibitions in the hbrary's Refer- 
ence Room. Cohasset's generous support of the Friends has produced significant rewards 
to its library. 

Surplus property. In addition to the Paul Pratt Memorial Library Fund mentioned 
above, two other funds were added to the endowment in 1993: one in memory of Freder- 
ick L. Good, Jr., a former board member of the Friends, and the second in memory of 
Elizabeth F. Eaton, long-time trustee. Friends and and families contributed gifts in their 
memories to be added to the library's endowment, with the annual income from each 
fund to be used for the purchase of books. Bookplates in memory of the deceased will be 
placed in books purchased from the income of each fund. 

In 1993, additions to the library's endowment total were $15,402. Income from the 
endowment of $11,924 was used for book purchases in support of the budget for Fiscal 
Year 1993. 

Other gifts. In 1993, other monetary gifts to the Paul Pratt Memorial Library were 
made in memory of Deborah Anton, Max Maire, Ruth Pratt, Margaret Bates, Helen 
Gould Tower, and Robert O'Hayre. These gifts have been used to purchase books, with 
bookplates naming the deceased placed within. In addition, The Hingham Historical 
Commission gave Cohasset a copy of the new history of Hingham, and the South Shore 
Health and Educational Foundation and June Hubbard donated seven videotapes in the 
Health News series to the hbrary. 

1993 has been another good year in the history of Cohasset's library, ably directed 
by Richard E. Hayes. Taxpayers, of course, provide basic support for the library. While 
the library budget represents less than 2% of Cohasset's budget, roughly three-quarters of 
Cohasset's citizens use the library. In addition, the library happily continues to receive 
the devoted efforts of staff, trustees, volunteers, and Friends, and to be the beneficiary of 
the financial generosity of many. All contribute to making it "a gem of a little library."

Recreation Commission 

It gives us great pleasure to report to residents the activities of their Recreation Com- 
mission for the year 1993. 

During the year, 6,975 individuals of all ages participated in a variety of structured 
programs, activities and events. While budget restrictions persist, continuing latitude of 
use of the Revolving Account Fund for 100% Self-Supporting Programs has been possi- 
ble due to the legislative modification of the RAF laws and guidelines. Currently, all but 
two programs are RAF sponsored, causing no impact upon taxpayers. The Recreation 
Commissioners adopted an Administrative Service Fee charge to all RAF programs dur- 
ing Fiscal Year 1992, and this financial system continues to reimburse taxpayers for the 
costs and time encumbrances of RAF Program operations. That is, the ASF revenues are 
deposited into the General Fund of the Town. Collectively, it is the revenue produced via 
Administrative Service fees, coupled with budget sponsored programs and beach parking 
sticker sales that reimburses taxpayers for the budget of their Recreation Commission. 
Only revenue on deposit in the General Fund can be considered recapitalization revenue. 

During Fiscal Year 1993, the Recreation Commission produced for the General Fund 
$63,031.23. Concurrently, during the same period, $81,184.10 was transacted via 
Revolving Account Funds for 100% Self-Supporting Programs via fees charged partici- 
pant for a variety of services. Another $9,000.00 was transacted via other self-supporting 
financial systems during F.Y. 1993, manifesting a collective $156,415.33 of recreational 
services to residents from the $66,963.00 budget of the Commission. These figures do 
not include the thousands of man-hours that are annually donated by hundreds of resi- 
dents, in support of a variety of program operations. 

Municipal recreation is for the benefit of all residents and we continue to direct our 
efforts towards assurance of equal access and oppormnity to the entire community. To 
this end, a specific and calculated portion of revenue was not collected this year from res- 
idents who were temporarily unable to pay full fee charges for services. In many 
instances time was volunteered in heu of full fee payments, benefiting the department and 
participants of programs. 

Programming represents only one of the responsibilities, duties, and functions as pre- 
scribed and conferred upon the Recreation Commission by both Massachusetts General 
Laws and By-Laws of the Town. Continuing efforts are focused upon upgrading and ren- 
ovating existing outdoor recreational facilities under the jurisdiction of the Commission. 

It has been and continues to be through a blending of private and public resources 
and funding that most facihties have been upgraded and/or renovated. Numerous Town 
departments and officials have continued to support our efforts in this area, for which we 
remain enormously grateful. 

The seven member, elected board of Recreation Commissioners volunteer their ser- 
vices to the Town and department, meeting regularly (on the third Tuesday of each 
month), in order to discuss a wide spectrum of topics relative to the leisure needs and pur- 
suits of all residents. Further, the Commissioners establish policy and provide depart- 
mental direction, support and assistance. Each meeting is publicly posted at least one 
week prior to date and residents are cordially invited to attend and participate in any 
meeting. Essential to our proper function, and absolutely vital towards success, is the 
ability to remain responsive and dynamic to changing community needs. We consider 
your input and feedback our most important source of guidance.

The Recreation Commission wishes to acknowledge gratitude to the many individu- 
als, civic and business organizations, school and sports groups, Town boards, committees 
and departments who have lent their support and assistance in our efforts to best serve the 
recreational and leisure needs of residents of all ages. While too numerous to mention, 
none are forgotten and all are sincerely appreciated and thanked.

Social Service League 

The Social Service League, under contract with the Board of Health, offers Public 
Health Nursing services to Town residents. The services include: monthly Keep Well 
Clinics, health promotion and education programs, and communicable disease report fol- 
low-up. The League office at 16 Highland Avenue is open for blood pressure checks, 
diabetic screening, tuberculin testing and general health consultations. The walk-in office 
hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. to 
1:30 p.m. 

Our monthly Keep Well Clinics are held at the Senior Luncheons and Harborview 
senior citizens' housing. These clinics are open to all Town residents. 

Other activities this year included: Our Annual Health Fair in May, a mammography 
screening in June, two Ru Clinics in October, participation in the Town's Drug Free 
Weekend, taking part in the newly formed South Shore Public Health Nurses' Associa- 
tion, and Hep B Immunization CHnics for Police and Fire Departments. Community edu- 
cation programs included: an Eating Disorders panel discussion at Cohasset High 
School; Women's Health Issues with Dr. Alice Rothchild, and a follow-up Eating Disor- 
ders program for parents and teachers. 

This year, for the first time, the Board of Health made pneumonia vaccine available 
to our over-65 residents free of charge. More than sixty seniors have been vaccinated to 
date. 

We continue to cooperate with the Council on Aging, the Cohasset Schools, and area 
physicians to provide and promote optimum health care for our community. We thank all 
volunteers and community groups who have helped us in the past year.

Education 



School Committee and Superintendent of Schools 

We are pleased to submit the 1993 Annual Report for the Cohasset Public Schools. 

This was an historic year for education in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. On 
June 18, 1993 Governor Weld signed into law Chapter 71, the Education Act of 1993. 
The intent of the Act is to systemically reform education in our state. The Reform Act 
addresses four major areas. They are: 

1. Students and Education Programs 

2. Educational Personnel 

3. Local and State Governance 

4. Finance 

Highlights of the Act include that beginning with the class of 1999 any student who 
does not pass a competency test will not be granted a high school diploma. Individual 
schools and school districts will be evaluated on an annual basis. Curriculum frame- 
works will be established in mathematics, science and technology, history and social sci- 
ence, English, foreign languages and the Arts. Student performance on a broad range of 
competencies will be assessed in grades 4, 8 and 10. 

Principals now have the authority to expel any student who is found on school 
premises or at a school sponsored event in possession of a dangerous weapon or a con- 
trolled substance. Smoking is prohibited by anyone at any time within school buildings, 
at other school facilities or on school buses. 

Teachers will no longer be granted lifetime certification. All educational personnel 
will be required to renew their certification every five years. Renewal will require docu- 



144 



mentation of ongoing professional development. Tenure has been abolished and replaced 
with the professional teacher status. Professional teacher status is achieved after three 
consecutive years of successful employment. 

The role of the School Committee has been reaffirmed as a policy making board. 
They now appoint only the Superintendent of Schools and the Assistant Superintendent 
of Schools. Control of the budget process, however, still remains under their jurisdiction. 
The responsibility for hiring and terminating all personnel within a school building is the 
responsibility of the Principal. 

Within each school a School Council must be formed. The Council will be com- 
posed of: 

1. School Principal 

2. Parents elected by other parents 

3. Teachers elected by other teachers 

4. Other community members who are not parents of children in the school 

5. Students at the secondary level 

The School Council will assist the principal in setting goals for the school. It will 
also identify educational needs, review the budget and prepare a school improvement 
plan. 

The purpose of the financial section of the Education Reform Act is to distribute 
more equitably education funds. It attempts to ensure that all students, no matter where 
they reside, will receive an adequate education. 

While the Education Reform Act has the promise for promoting meaningful educa- 
tional change, we must continue to move forward at the local level. 

For the present year we have established the following goals: 

A. Implement new teacher evaluation system 

1 . Provide training for all evaluators 

2. Conduct orientation to evaluation instrument for all new staff members 

3 . Provide opportunity for training in evaluation methodology for staff members 

B. Evaluate Inservice structure 

1. Administer evaluation instrument at the conclusion of each inservice 
program 

2. Review evaluation data collected 

3. Meet with Inservice Committee to evaluate effectiveness of inservice 
programs 

4. Prepare report for School Committee 

Curriculum 

A. Implement recommendation of Science Curriculum Review 

1. Meet with Elementary Science Committee members to study the science 
review recommendations and identify aspects that may be addressed for 
implementation 

2. Integrate recommendations into the school improvement plan developed by 
each school council 

3. Emphasize the coordination of the science and math program at the 
Junior/Senior High School 

B. Implement the Cohasset Technology Plan 

1 . Coordinate the construction and development of a technology computer lab 
at the Osgood School 

2. Introduce new technologies into the Hbrary program3. Design a renovated 
computer lab at the Deer Hill School 



145 



C. Conduct study of Deer Hill Grade 5-6 Team Teaching Program 

1 . Organize study committee consisting of school administrator, teachers and parents 

2. Review present programs 

3. Made recommendation, if appropriate, for program modification 

Alternative Financial Resources 

A. Work with Local Education Foundation to identify corporate funding and/or othei 
private sources of financial support for school programs 

1. Superintendent will continue to participate as an ex officio member of the 
Board of Directors of the Cohasset Local Education Foundation 

B . Explore possible regionalization of educational services 

L Superintendent will continue to be a member of the South Shore Educa 
tional Collaborative Regional Services Committee 

Education Reform 

A. Implement Massachusetts Education Reform Act of 1993 

L Establish School Councils at the Osgood, Deer Hill and Junior/Senior Higt 
Schools 

2. Prepare revised student handbooks 

3. Submit a plan to eliminate "general track" 

We are also pleased to note that a three-year contract has been ratified with the 
Cohasset Teachers Association. Because of the cooperative spirit exhibited by both par- 
ties to the negotiations, a final contract was agreed upon which recognizes both the fiscal 
limitations of the Town and the need to realistically compensate our teachers. 

In June we were informed by School Match, the nation's largest school selectior 
consulting firm, that the Cohasset Schools had been chosen as a recipient of the 1993 
"What Parents Want" award. Only 9 percent of the nation's public schools qualified tc 
receive this award. 

We would like to thank all who support our school system. With the active involve- 
ment of the community we will continue to strive for excellence in our schools.

South Shore Regional Vo-tech High School 
And finally, it's a reality! 

The long-awaited facility addition and improvements to the South Shore Regional 
Vocational Technical High School has ushered in an era of positive enrolhnent growth and 
the promise of even more responsive educational and community service to its district 



146 



towns. Now in the thirty-first year of serving southeastern Massachusetts, South Shore con- 
tinues to position itself as a leader in vocational education and as a district resource, prepar- 
ing students and area citizens for the fast paced and ever changing challenges of a diverse 
and highly technical present and future workplace. In areas like construction, manufactur- 
ing, automotive technology, and medical and services industries, the need to maintain cur- 
rent, state-of-the-art and flexible education and training has never been greater. As our soci- 
ety and work markets continue to experience change, our yoimg people must be prepared to 
hit the road running. 

On January 3, 1994, the formal completion of the building project begun in December, 
1992, was symbolized by the opening of classrooms and shops for student use. While fmish 
work continues to be done, students enrolled in Cosmetology, Culinary Arts, Drafting, Elec- 
tronics, Electrical, Graphic Arts and Auto Body programs experienced the opportunity of 
attendance in a brand new state-of-the-art facility. The opening of the new hair salon, 
restaurant and lecture hall facilities provides not only for student learning opportimities, but 
public participation and enjoyment in environments of which the district communities can 
be deservedly proud. 

While serving primarily area secondary school students. South Shore continues to be 
truly a community school. Continuing Education and Business Partnership programs serve 
in excess of 300 adult learners, many acquiring new skills, enhancing existing ones, or sim- 
ply exploring an interest or avocation. In any event, the message delivered to all is the 
importance of learning being a life-long and critical component in our lives. 

In November, South Shore welcomed twenty-three fellow vocational educators repre- 
senting the New England Association of Schools and Colleges. This three-day evaluative 
visit culminated a year of intensive staff and program self-examination, the first of this type 
in ten years. While a formal report is not due until Spring, 1994, the feedback provided will 
assist in the ongoing process of curriculum review and development, programmatic direc- 
tion and overall services to students. 

A critically important component to the comprehensive nature of educating the young 
people of the South Shore District includes giving back to the community and involving stu- 
dents and staff in community service activities. To this end. South Shore Vo-Tech continues 
to perform a multitude of work related and community directed roles. Some are truly "open to 
the public" and are of service to citizens of the entire area. Some have become industry and 
business specific, as has been seen in business partnerships and in South Shore staff serving as 
consulting advisors and trainers to companies, local agencies, or employment groups. Still 
others are often community specific. A large contingent of Cohasset senior citizens joined 
with their local towns' mates at a wonderful holiday dinner in December, sponsored by South 
Shore student organizations and Student Council. Vo-Tech 's carpentry students constructed a 
beautiful entertainment center in memory of former district school committee member David 
Chittim, which is housed at the Council on Aging Center in town. Additional examples of 
extensive community/school responsiveness will be in evidence for years to come, seen in the 
work done on the historically significant "Lightkeeper's House" in the Harbor, as well as 
through the assistance rendered by the electrical instructors and students in recent area Habitat 
for Humanity construction. Partnerships, linkages and assisting in a variety of technical and 
service ventures are indicative of the kinds of cooperative relationships with district towns 
toward which South Shore continues to strive. 

Academically, as well as technically, South Shore is in constant pursuit of excellence. 
In addition to NEASC recommendations upcoming for consideration and implementation, 
staff at South Shore strive to attain the best possible curricular relevance and integration of 
learning for their students. 

Added focus to "Tech Prep" articulation curricula developed with area college repre- 
sentatives is gaining more and more impetus and broadened scope. Life-long learning and 
the need to prepare for constant change in the workplace are obvious goals. Another that 



147 



has been gathering momentum locally, as well as on the state and national fronts, has been 
the recognition that the all important school to work and career transition is of critical sig- 
nificance, not only to each individual, but to our economy as well. South Shore stands ready 
and willing to help our students and communities prepare and keep current with the work- 
place and economic demands important to all of our futures. 

Currently there are 460 students enrolled in the school, and as of October 1, 1993, two 
students from our town are enrolled in one or more of the fourteen programs currently 
offered at the school. 

Superintendent James Hager and his administration, the staff and students, School 
Committee and advisors to the South Shore Regional School District welcome the chal- 
lenges facing our area towns, and pledge their efforts toward providing productive educa- 
tional opportimities at the school. South Shore has been proud to serve the community of 
Rockland and the region over past years. We appreciate your support and encouragement 
and look forward with eager enthusiasm to future success in delivering quality vocational 
technical programs to our children in a truly comprehensive educational environment. In 
doing so, citizens of Cohasset and the entire South Shore community are able to benefit. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Laurence J. Mitchell

Regional School District Planning Committee 

Our Committee completed its financial assessment of regional school district 
options. This process involved examination of the key changes to facilities, personnel 
costs, operating expenses, and State Aid for regional school districts. Working with our 
counterparts in Hingham and Hull, and with the cooperation of the three towns' Superin- 
tendents and various town agencies, we have concluded that: 

* the operating economies and State Aid incentives for a regional district would be 
largely if not fully offset by the costs of new construction, transportation, and 
salary schedule reconciliation; 

* numerous opportunities for regional efficiencies exist and are being pursued 
aggressively by our three towns through the Superintendents' efforts. These 
include the South Shore Collaborative, the Lighthouse Project, and informal 
group purchasing efforts; 

* additional opportunities for cooperation with other towns may result from 
increasing contact among the various towns' School Committees, administra- 
tors, faculty, etc. 

Based on these findings, we have recommended to the Selectmen that our Committee 
be dissolved.
